1 Report 1 I read myself in on the uu site, which was pretty handy, and I attented a lecture on future exchange students and etc.. For the rest, just read the headlines online and ask any questions you want to ask to the international office, which will be gladly of service to you. As I said, the exchange informational lecture and the office which is at your service. I made sure I got all my grades in order plus the courses, and I did a course on Irish literature & culture at uu. English was already pretty good, so no worries there. Made a financial plan, and during my stay I borrowed maximum amount of money from DUO. Some of the courses I wanted to do weren't available when I arrived, so I had to switch things up. I ended up with only two courses for my major and three other ones which combined formed a really good package Really good, I have been really inspired by my teachers and they indeed taught me a lot about their subjects. I chose two history courses and because they were the first history courses I ever took, they taught me to see things from a different perspective, especially if looked at from my literary background. The international office had good opening hours and was of great service for my s and run-ins. They did a good job of informing me whenever I need to. Don't know yet. We had an orientation programme including an informational lecture, a tour of the campus, and we had to pick up our erasmus pass at some point, all during the first week. Was pretty good, got a lecture on all the clubs and societies UCC has to offer, which is actually pretty impressive.
2 Leeside Apartments, greatest shithole out there. Although I had a huge room with my own balcony, sanitary was disgusting, apparently flushing more often than twice per hour is not really a priority in Ireland. The landlady could be a tyrant, but in general, if you clean they are pretty nice. It's huge apartment-complex which houses a lot of students, I could actually recommend it to anyone, but you have to be lucky with the people in it. I had a great group of Americans, and there will be a lot of Americans next year too. If you don't like Americans, don't take this one. It's really close to the city center and about twice the distance to campus, so its location is ideal. Never in my life have I seen so much culture in everyday +nightlife as in Cork. It was awesome, go out whenver you can cuz the people are the nicest in the world. Besides that, UCC incorporates sports to the maximum extent, free gym access and free entrance into societies and clubs which offer nearly every sport there is for free. Go to the Franciscan Well, they brew their own beer and it's great. would you recommend this host organisation/destination to others? please explain As I stated above, there are many reasons for going to Cork. The plurality of cultural events, the pubs and clubs, the great sporting s, the location near a lot of Ireland's greatest natural beauties such as the Cliffs of Moher, Dingle Peninsula, Ring of Kerry, Beara Peninsula, Rock of Cashel, Kinsale, and a bunch of others. And besides, university offers a great selection of courses on Irish history, culture including music and has great teachers with a lot of field experience who can enrich your stay even further. In short, there is actually no reason not to come. Report 2 At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to go abroad, because it seemed like much work, but I finally did it, with help of the people of the Studiepunt. It wasn't very clear who had to sign what at first, but I managed to get everything done, in good time before the deadlines. There was a good list to choose from, I selected Cork, Ireland as my first choice because of the courses they offered, which were very much the things I liked. As I said before, it was a bit difficult to make sure who signed what, but with help from the people from the Foreign Exchange Office, I managed to. Also, the help of my friends and of other people who also wanted to go abroad helped me a great deal. I knew what I wanted to do for my Master's program, and I chose the courses that would complement that. I had a very broad selection of course that I have finished at my home University, so that was not really a problem because the levels were as could be expected of me.
3 My minor is English, so for that I did not really need much. I did research Ireland more before I left, such as the culture and other things. I had much money saved up from my jobs, and I also worked more to be able to pay for it. If I had needed more, my parents would have helped. The grants from Erasmus and the Government were also very helpful. I chose the courses that I would ultimately not do, because when I arrived at the University, I realised I could pick from many more courses than I originally thought. Which was a good thing, I was not restricted to the English department. In the, they offered so much that it was too hard to choose, but I realised they offered many courses designed for visiting students. The quality of the education was very good, the teachers knew what they were talking about and they loved what they did. Their love for their country was very obvious, and even infectious. The teachers were very open about being approached with questions, especially the teachers of Introduction to Irish. They were very personal, and took their time to answer questions. I was also assigned an older student who could help me out if I needed to know something, but I did not need it because the introduction program was very good and well-thought out. UCC explained that the credits mentioned after the name of the course were the same at our home universities, meaning the amoung of work would be the same. This is only true for Erasmus students, though. It was very clear where we had to be, and we were acquainted with the campus and the facilities, and also where to find information when we needed it. I have not needed to go to people and ask about the basic things. I lived in Copley Court, which is Student Accomodation. It was quite big, close to the city centre and the campus. It was very good for the price I paid for my room. There was also good service. UCC students had discount on public transport, free entrance to the cathedral, and we had free unlimited entrance to the sport's facilities, which was really good. I went to a few aquarobics classes, which were good fun. Travel as much as possible, and enjoy Cork as well. It is a very good city.
4 would you recommend this host organisation/destination to others? please explain Yes, I would. The courses are varied, the staff very friendly and understanding. They are passionate about their jobs and their proffession. Ireland is wonderful, as well, with many things to do even close to Cork City. I had a wonderful time there, I wish I had gone for a whole year! Report 3 I had to write a motivation letter to the Harting Programme, stating my top three universities and the courses I would like to attend there. After that the Harting committee decided to which university I would go. After that it is just following the instructions given on the university website and given to you in s. The support I got for the Harting Programme was great, they really want you to be happy with the university and will try their best to place you at one of your universities. The additional information for an Erasmus grant on the website was somewhat harder, but after some searching it was all there and just a matter of filling everything in. The level of education should be sufficient enough for you to follow your courses in a foreign university. In my case I certainly felt that I was at the same level as the Irish students and that I could follow everything perfectly fine. Since I study English I feel my language level was sufficient when I first arrived in Ireland and that I progressed during my stay The Erasmus grant helps, but you certainly must have other sources of income. Life abroad is expensive, especially since you will also want to visit the country. I was a Harting scholar, so that enabled me to follow all the English courses I wanted, because for Erasmus students it must be half your credits in English and the other half in other fields. Just fill in all the papers, get them signed and you'll be fine Similar to your own university, you'll find courses and teacher you'll like more or less. However, I find that the general level was excellent and all the teacher will try their best to transfer their knowledge and help you if you are troubled.
5 The international office deals with questions every day, but their attitude is very welcoming and they make sure you leave their office with all the answers you need. The organisation is some what slower than in the Netherlands, but everything will get done and the people will assist in whatever way possible. A schedule can be found online, which allows you to keep track of the grades you'll get in Holland. It will however take quite some time before you'll get them. In Cork during the frist two weeks of September a introduction programme is arranged, which offers the opportunity to get to know the university, city and students! The university offers several accomodations, which are absolutely fine. It is worth looking at s closer to the city centre though, because for example University Hall is rather far from the centre. Cork has a very diverse nightlife, with pubs with or without live Irish music and clubs. From it is very easy to take either a bus or a train towards many different locations in Ireland!! Walk around the city, it might not look like much at first but there are so many different hidden gems that every time you take a stroll you'll find something new! would you recommend this host organisation/destination to others? please explain Yes definitely, Ireland is an amazing country filled with very friendly and helpful people. The university offers quality and the courses are taught by motivated and inspiring teachers. Visit as many places, events organised for international students and just enjoy! Report 1 I attended information meetings organised by the. I wanted to go to an English speaking country and I have read reports by other students and the websites of the Universities that I could apply for. The UCC website was very helpful. They have lots of booklets and information sheets available, but it takes a while to figure out how to get there. Once you have figured out which forms need to be filled out, the process is not that complicated anymore.
6 After I had made my top 3, I discussed the possible modules I could choose and what would be useful for me. The helped me with any questions I had about my paperwork, though sometimes it is more useful to ask fellow students who are going or already went abroad. I took some extra courses before I left to make sure I had enough ECTS. I wanted to know more about Celtic culture before I went to Ireland, so I did "Introduction to Celtic" from the Celtic department. I left on January 2nd, in the middle of block 2, so I missed the exam week. I only took one course in this block and I talked to my teacher to make sure I could still pass my exam. All courses in UCC (except language courses) are taught in English. English is my major, so any further was not necessary. I saved up money from my part-time job, applied for an Erasmus grant and made arrangements with my parents. I also made an appointment at the bank office to arrange insurance, a creditcard and a spare debitcard. There is a wide variety of courses that you can pick as an international students. There are "normal courses" (with all the Irish students) and courses especially for exchange students, which often have something to do with Irish culture. All the courses are listed on the UCC website, in the "Book of Modules". All courses also list their timetables, which enables you to make your own schedule (many exchange students make sure they have Fridays or Mondays off). They usually also list what type of exam there will be, so you avoid having many exams in May (which means lots of time for travelling in April). You get the first week of term to try out all the courses you might like, so you actually know what you're picking. The courses for visiting students only are easier than the average UU course. The courses for normal students are at about the same level (though some are easier as well), but there is one big difference: you usually don't have to study all the texts, because you only have to answer a few questions and you can pick those yourself (sometimes you get the questions in advance). The at UCC is willing to help with everything. They reply to e- mail fairly quickly and are happy to help you when you walk into the office. I haven't been there often though. All my courses could be transferred. The literature course could even go into my major. My orientation programme was only one day, but I have heard that the one in the fall is longer. The day started with a speech by two ladies from the International office, who explained the structure of UCC and the most important things we had to do, like how to sign up for classes. Afterwards, two student peer supporters
7 showed us around campus and explained the most important things about, where to get the best coffee for example. It is easier to find a room in Cork than in Utrecht. There are many student accomodation companies, as well as private houses that rent rooms to students. The UCC have a list of landlords that they work with, so it is worth looking at that. I lived in University Hall, which is part of Campus Accomodation. I liked it there, my room was nice (private bathroom) and my roommates were lovely. The only accomodation heard many complaints about is Castlewhite: it is a bit old and dirty, and they usually put all the first years and Asian exchange students there. There is a lot to do in Cork. UCC itself has a wide range of clubs and societies you can join (www.collegeroad.ie). Cork City has many pubs, shops, theatres and a cinema. A lot of pubs have sports or live music, and Irish people are good craic when they go out. All UCC students are automatically members of the Mardyke Arena, which is a very big gym, where you can also play team sports (UCC clubs). If you want to leave the city, there many place you can visit from Cork, such as The Cliffs of Moher, Dublin, Belfast, The Ring of Kerry and Kinsale. Just make the most of your time in Cork and don't worry too much, Irish people are very relaxed (sometimes even annoyingly so). Travel as much as you can, because Ireland is gorgeous. Try to get to know Irish people as well as Erasmus/International Students. Join a society, or at least like them on facebook so you know what parties are on (there is usually a facebook group for international students). would you recommend this host organisation/destination to others? please explain Yes. Cork is a lovely city and UCC is a nice university. There are many courses to choose from and UCC tries everything to encourage students to enjoy college life. Cork is a very friendly city, most people are very warm and open, there is so much to do and it is a good place to explore Ireland from. Make sure you try and arrange everything you can as well as possible before you leave. Make sure you have all the necessary insurances, DUO forms and financial arrangements, so you don't have to worry about them and can just focus on your life in Cork.
